Mainagate: Kyari, Oyo-Ita reconcile, embrace publicly

Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari and Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, on Wednesday embraced publicly before the commencement of the meeting of the Federal Executive Council at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The development came a week after the two top government officials engaged in an altercation at the same venue.

Oyo-Ita on arrival at the council chambers’ venue for the meeting went straight to greet Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

She was still discussing with Osinbajo when Kyari arrived.

All smiles, Kyari and Oyo-Ita embraced as cameramen struggled to get good shots of the public display of reconciliation.

Other members of the council clapped for them as the drama unfolded.

A heated argument had taken place between the two officials last week.

The altercation was believed to be the fallout of the leaked memo, which Oyo-Ita sent to Kyari on the controversial reinstatement and subsequent posting of the embattled former Chairman of the Pension Reform Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina.

The clash between the two officials took place in the presence of Osinbajo; President of the Senate,  Bukola Saraki; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, John Odigie-Oyegun; service chiefs and ministers.
